Democrats to host ‘Go, Granny, Go’

Written by 

Actress Barbara Bates Smith will perform the play “Go, Granny, Go”, the inspiring story of Doris “Granny D” Haddock, at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Mountain Heritage Center at Western Carolina University, with musical accompaniment from Jeff Sebens.

A reception will be held before the performance at 6:30 p.m. Joe Sam Queen, Young Democrats and College Democrats are sponsoring the event. Tickets are $15.

“Granny D,” a 90-year-old in 2000, was considered a national heroine as she completed a walk from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. to bring attention to campaign finance reform.

Smith, noted for her Off-Broadway adaptation and performance of “Ivy Rowe” from Lee Smith’s Fair and Tender Ladies, has toured for 20 years with the works of Lee Smith.
